Metal History Through Fanzines

Loud ‘N’ Proud #1 (East Germany) 1990 (auf Deutsch)

Loud ‘N’ Proud #1 (East Germany) 1990. Editor: “Andreas Schoewe” (auf Deutsch)

“Das Erste Hard Rock und Heavy Metal Journal der DDR” – Nice historical gem here. I was told (and it is also stated in the contents/credits) that this was the first hard rock/metal zine to come from the former East Germany (Rostock-Deutsche Demokratische Republik or DDR/GDR) prior to reunification. It appears it might be true, because for some reason this issue has a number of photos ‘redacted'(?), so perhaps it was censored before it was released? Who knows. Anyways, great snapshot of the German scene in the late 1980s with some Noise Records bands and others including Accept, B.O.R.N., Bonfire, Defcon, Hardholz, Kreator, Lanadrid, Mephisto, Noisehunter, Rage, Running Wild, Scorpions, Titan, U.D.O., Vice and a review of the X-Mas Metal Meeting in Dusseldorf  on December 19, 1989, that featured Manowar, Saxon, Fates Warning, Sabbat and Lizzy Borden, plus album reviews. (Thanks to N. Barsch for sharing).
